Smart, social, urban-style living in a near-secret location – the all-new, lovingly-renovated York Cottage has all this and more. Tucked away just off South Green, it’s a super choice for friends or a family group getaway.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
A luxurious king-size bedroom on the first floor has ample wardrobe and drawer space so you can unpack and unwind in style. There’s storage space in the twin bedroom on this floor too, while the white, bright family-sized bathroom features a modern roll-top bath, spacious walk-in shower cubicle and a decorative tiled floor. A glass-panel staircase leads up to the second floor and another twin bedroom where a neutral colour scheme enhances the natural light and is sure to contribute to peaceful slumbers. This beautiful cottage also benefits from a ground floor w/c and washbasin. 

Cooking and dining
An open plan living, kitchen and dining space fills the ground floor here and delivers excellence at every level – limestone flooring and a large table set the scene for fine dining, while the chefs in your holiday party will love the no-hassle electric oven and induction hob. Dual-aspect bi-fold doors open onto a small courtyard that means you can entertain outdoors too… and a slimline dishwasher takes care of all the washing up afterwards!

A small courtyard extends your living space and comes complete with a selection of outdoor furniture, while Southwold’s grand South Green – and beyond it, the beach – is just a few steps from your front door.

Underfloor and gas heating, plus a Charnwood woodburner in the lounge, keep York Cottage cosy and comfortable all year round. A 42-inch Smart TV offers at-the-press-of-a-button entertainment, and there’s a selection of books and games for you to enjoy too. A washer-dryer is provided for your convenience, roadside parking is plentiful, and Southwold’s favourite shops, pubs and eateries are all just a short stroll away.

Property was full of old charm, but brought up to date with a bright, clean modern (but homely) interior and extra touches such as torches next to the bed and a welcome tray where highly appreciated after a long drive. - 13th March 2019

This was our first visit to Suffolk. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Southwold is beautiful and has everything you need. The beach is glorious. There are lots of great places to eat and drink. The property we stayed in was fantastic. Coudn’t Fault it. The service we received from Suffolk Secrets was also excellent. Can’t wait to return. Mrs Lisa Sellers - 5th August 2018
